From the back of the box:
A civilization is ready to awaken.
But it cannot do so by itself. Two generations ago, a star spanning society annihilated itself in a furious war. The final weapon in this war was a new form of life - a malevolent electronic race that hates life itself. But among the ruins, life is stirring - a civilization is waiting to be rebuilt.
You are one of those rebuilders, and you know that to regain the stars, humanity must be willing to pay the bill for a generation of carnage and destruction. That bill can only be paid with audacity, courage and dogged determination. You are bold enough to pay that price, because you've seen what passes for existance in the ruins of civilization, and it's not good enough. Not by a long shot. Winning the stars is never easy but you're going to make that new furure- one world at a time.
It's time for a new era
